Nights with Uncle Remus
is a story-book dearly loved by children. Besides that, it is an important contribution to
the study of Afro-American folk-lore, and through many years of popularity it has carried
a long and learned Introduction, of great interest to students but rather forbidding in aspect
to youthful readers. In this new edition, which has been prepared especially for children,
and illustrated in colors by an artist who knows how to please them as well as their elders,
the Introduction has been omitted, but the stories and their charming setting have been left intact.
